The DSA recommends that a learner driver should have at least 45 hours of professional driver training with a further 22 hours private practice.

The traditional method of one hour lessons, once a week means it could take up to a year to be ready to sit your test. We can offer you a variety of alternatives to speed up your progress. Driving lessons could be longer than an hour and you could take your driving sessions more frequently than once a week.

If you want to pass your driving test as quickly as possible ICU Passing can often provide Intensive Driving Courses.

We can offer both semi and intensive courses, meaning you will learn to drive over a shorter period of time with longer more frequent lessons. These intensive driving courses are perfect for people who need to pass their driving test quickly or have limited time to spend on lessons.

ICU Passing has designed Intensive Driving Courses offering structured, affordable training. Our intensive courses are for any age or experience and can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual trainee. The choice is yours: take from 15 hours to 54 hours spread over one to four weeks. How many hours you will need depends on how you are progressing in your driver training:

Unsuccessful in a Test:
12–15 hrs may be enough to brush up on your skills.

Complete Beginner:
From first time behind the wheel to ready for test may take 45 hours or more.

Very Nervous or just not getting it:
You may require 50 hours or more to feel confident and safe behind the drivers wheel.
